In ancient Egypt the Ankh was a metaphorical key of life is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol that was most commonly used in writing and in Egyptian art to represent the word for "life" and, by extension, as a symbol of life itself. In certain dynasties it would be affixed atop a staff like this one as a symbol of a high priests power. It was exactly the sort of thing you would expect a high priest like Amenemhat Mery or Ptahmose Meryptah to wield in the court of Amenhotep the second.
One of the great things about this Egyptian Staff is that it breaks down into two pieces. This makes it easy to travel with and won’t get you any crazy stares from other people riding the subway. Then when you get to your con, costume party of cosplay event, you can easily assemble it back into a sturdy 40-inch Egyptian-styled walking staff.
